I and my two best friends go on a trip every year, and we decided this
year to go to the Carribean. We had three goals: relax, spend time on
a beach, and not break the bank -- as we seem to de every year on our
trips! We accomplished all of our goals at this resort. It was
beautifully maintained - the grounds, the rooms, even the bathrooms. We could
not imagine what the nay-sayers who wrote some of the reviews were
talking about! Do not believe them. And, we're picky! Also, we did not go during Spring Break, and the first few days we felt like we had the resort to ourselves.
The beaches are amazing and the waters pristine. The rooms were
comfortable and spacious -- though the beds were not terrific, they were
fine. The service was great and very friendly -- though the waiters could
be a bit familiar. The grounds were lush and simply gorgeous. We
never swam in the main pool -- we used the pool at the spa which was quiet
and basically private as no one else was using it. The massages there
are awesome by the way!
Do bring the $1's. They came in handy -- and bring many -- they were
all very nice. Don't expect the food to be fantastic -- we ate mostly
at the buffet at the seafood restaurant on the beach, and the breakfasts
and lunches were very good -- dinner, don't expect much. The Chinese
Restaurant was good -- and the Italian place was decent. Nothing was
I would definitely go back during the week -- I would steer clear of
the weekends though -- there were a TON of very loud people that came in
on Friday -- however, we discovered on the next to last day, that there
is a beach that extends to the right after the Royal Service beach,
that is very quiet and is part of the resort -- actually, I guess I would
go back on the weekends. We only went to the nightclub and main area
one night, and it was extremely cruise shippy -- expect it if you go.
We never left the resort -- except for one walking trip down to a
shopping area about a mile down the beach -- it was worth it as we bought a
painting for not much $$ -- bargain with them -- they are incredibly
pushy with their "cheapy cheapy" prices. The snorkeling is included and
is a fun short trip in a speed boat -- it was a ton of fun but quick --
only about a half hour -- we should have gone every day.
It was a really fun trip -- and it was all for $530 per person (hotel
and food -- the massages were $85 for an hour and well worth it).
